~$7M capital works project

A new reservoir, pipework and upgrades to intakes were completed in 2022.

The 9.6m-high, 3.9 megalitre reservoir at Ravenshoe is complete and has passed testing. The hardware and software to control the reservoir levels and water treatment is being installed and the reservoir will be commissioned once everything is functional.

The geotechnical surveys of the 23km pipeline route that will connect Belleview Estate, Cassowary Heights and Millstream to the Ravenshoe scheme are complete, and construction will commence in the coming months.

The design of a water treatment plant and booster pump stations to connect Millstream, Cassowary Heights and Bellview Estate to the Ravenshoe scheme is complete and tender documents are due any day. $2.43M has been allocated in the 2022–23 budget for the construction of the booster pump and pipelines and they should be complete in the 2022–23 financial year. Funding is being sought for the construction of the water treatment plant and it should also be completed in the 2023–24 financial year.

Proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland and Local Government Grants and Subsidies Programs in association with Tablelands Regional Council.
